Flu Shots, Swimming, Shopping & the Park

We started off today by getting our flu shots. Kaiser had two drive through clinics available and David wanted to get going as early as possible. We were in line by 8:11 (it opened at 8:00) and done by 8:46. Although we had a bit of a wait, it was really well organized and moved quickly. They were expecting to give 10,000 shots today. After the shots, we went to breakfast at Norm's where we split the steak and eggs special.

Then it was time for swimming lessons. Janice was running late so we changed Kyleigh outside by the car before going in. Kyleigh didn't want to go with the teacher, but calmed down halfway across the pool. She's getting really brave, trying to climb off the platforms, etc, but she still doesn't like to float on her back. Janice has decided to take a break for a couple of months and stop the lessons at the end of October.

After swimming lessons we went looking for a Halloween costume for Kyleigh. First we went to the Party Time near the condo. but they didn't have anything so we went to Babies R Us. Before going into the store, Kyleigh got the chance to visit with Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street. The ride wasn't working though.

She found a costume she liked (Tigger), but Janice didn't, so we went into the mall to check out Penneys and the Disney Store. We got her a Tinkerbell costume at the Disney Store for 1/2 price. Before we went to Penneys, we stopped for an Orange Julius. Kyleigh and I waited at the table while Janice went to get the drinks. Here, she's pretending to talk to Mommy on the phone (Mommy's in line where she can see her and is also pretending to talk on the phone.)

After an emergency diaper change, Kyleigh and I rode the escalator from the first floor to the third floor while Janice took the elevator with the stroller. Kyleigh loves to ride the escalator and she does a very good job of standing still and holding my hand, all with a huge smile on her face. We checked out the holiday dresses, but Kyleigh shook her head at each dress she was shown, so we didn't buy anything.
On the way home, we stopped at a park so I could introduce Kyleigh to thunder sticks. Unfortunately, she was more interested in the playground equipment.
